Totally cool alert
This is coming to San Diego.
If you visit screen 15 at the Pacific Theatres in the Gaslamp Quarter, don’t expect to sit back and enjoy a relaxing night at the movies. Instead, you’ll enter a battle zone designed for an all-out war.
It’s a computer game war, but a war nonetheless.
The theater has been transformed into a multi-player gaming center in which patrons can challenge one another on some 80 computer games. Unlike a video arcade, players will compete against each other on such popular game systems as Microsoft’s XBox, Sony’s PlayStation 2 and Nintendo’s GameCube.
Where there used to be stadium-style theater seating, there are now comfortable executive leather chairs and computer monitors. When the gaming center opens in January, there also will be video screens of varying sizes hanging from the walls so gamers and spectators can view several different contests at once.
I’ll check it out after it opens and report back.
